    The much anticipated coloring book is here. Art, Lyrics, Crayons, Music. What more could you ask for?

    **ATTENTION - Although the item is listed as "Record/Vinyl," it is not in fact a vinyl record. It is a coloring book (with a digital copy of the music included). The Bandcamp store isn't as hipster as we are and did not anticipate the future, so we had to improvise. Apologies for any confusion.

about

Recorded at Inhesion Studios, Lilburn, GA, featuring samples from The Liquorsmiths' album "All My Friends Are Fighters." Featuring lyrics from the legendary poet Bill Henley (Invictus). Pretty sure the words are public domain, but all of us aren't lawyers and we didn't run it by Jen, so here we go.
A song about survival. I've seen my death and this isn't it.

lyrics

Out of the night that covers me
Black as the pit from pole to pole
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable sole
The fell clutch of circumstance
I had not winced nor cried aloud
under the bludgeoning of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed
In this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the horror of the shade
And yet the menace of my years
Finds and shall find me unafraid
It matters not how straight the gate
How charged with punishments the scroll
I am the master of my fate
I am the captain of my sole

You say you want glory
No matter the cost
Its a limb or a life
Long as the message ain't lost
So let's live like we're martyrs
We'll walk down the road
Cause they can cut back a garden
But the roots they still grow

I have failed where I am strong
I've triumphed where I am weak
But I have learned to see it out
Its been bright and its been bleak
The gallows of a poisoned mind
Where I am hated and despised
And its cut me to the core
And its the fire n my eyes
So call it love or loneliness
Call it fate or call it will
Grit your teeth and make a fist
'Cause we will bleed for what is real

You say you want glory
No matter the cost
Its a limb or a life
Long as the message ain't lost
So we'll live like we're martyrs
We'll march down the roads
'Cause they can cut back a garden
But the roots they still grow.
